I know that for those living in cooler parts of the world, having a cold smoothie may not be what you are feeling right now. But before we here in Australia head into cooler weather, I am making use of the beautiful sunshine and warmer weather. And this smoothie is a very tasty and refreshing drink that is ideal for warmer weather.
This is one of those smoothies that is not much to look at but tastes so so yum. It is quick to make, great for a quick breakfast or an after-school filler. It just needs four ingredients – watermelon, banana, milk and a bit of condensed milk.
The star ingredient of this smoothie is watermelon. I used deliciously ripe, seedless watermelon. The bananas should be ripe and can be used as is or frozen. Make sure to slice the banana prior to freezing so that it blends well. The banana adds a beautiful creaminess to the smoothie.
The addition of the condensed milk is to add some sweetness and the flavour incorporates really well with the watermelon and banana.
Milk is added in a very small portion just to aid the blending process.
Watermelon – 2 cups, chopped and frozen
Banana – 1, sliced and frozen
Condensed milk – 2 tablespoons
Milk – 1-2 tablespoons
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend till incorporated well, If required, scrape the sides once in between to ensure even mixing. Serve cold.
